Causeway started as an online platform that connected unmet needs with people who wanted to help, a website where people with ideas could drum up funding and support, and those who wanted to help could decide how to pitch in. A kickoff for the next phase of Causeway will be held Thursday.
The kickoff will include BBQ, Blues and a few surprises and is hosted by Causeway, the Benwood Foundation and Footprint Foundation. It will be held at Patten Parkway, downtown Chattanooga, from 6-8:30 p.m.
Causeway is moving from an exclusively online platform to one that is present in the city. They aim to be a resource hub, putting boots on the ground to connect Chattanooga residents, and to help them develop innovative solutions to some of the city’s most pressing civic challenges.
They are stepping up activity, focusing on creating more programs and opportunities for people to engage in Chattanooga. Over the next few months they will be piloting several new initiatives with the goal of creating a network of people committed to improving the city. They are building a strong team, and moving the workspace into the heart of the city, on Patten Parkway, to create an accessible environment.
Guests at the Causeway Kickoff will find out specifics about new programming, meet the staff, hear about a few new opportunities, and see where Causeway lays down their welcome mat.
